We have but one authentic specimen of the Soongarian C. Gortscfiakovii, which
agrees perfectly with a small unbraached state of our Tibetan, plant. Amongst a few
fragments of plants brought to us (when in Sikkim) from Nepalese Tibet, are racemes
of a Corydalis apparently intermediate between C. Hoorcrqftian& and C. Qvrtscha-
kovti, having the glandular pubescence of the former plant, and the bracts of the
latter.

All our dried specimens, and these are exceedingly numerous, from almost every
province between' Sifckim and Kashmir, are of a peculiar Rrey glaucous hue; they
are excessively variable iu stature and habit, and the size, depth, and lobing of the
